    I think I'll need the extra help. I spent like three hours the other night trying to figure out how big to cut my pieces, drawing on my little dry erase board and using my calculator. I only got as far as figuring out for my double pinwheel blocks I could get two half squares out of a 5" square. And I'm not entirely sure if I got that right. lol.

    I'm gonna need 8" blocks. Is it possible for you to give me directions that doesn't involve strip cutting? It will be a total nightmare for me to try and cut a paralell strip of fabric. I can't afford to screw up the cutting process so I need some sort of cutting process that doesn't totally make me feel like I'm doing surgery on someone.

    Hi there, i'm new to the forum, but just wanted to say your pattern is absolutely beautiful! I don't know if this will help, but i usually use graph paper to make my patterns, and it takes the guessing and calculating out of the picture. But honestly, your pattern looks really really hard, good luck with it!

    Ok, instead of rotary cutting instructions, I've done you some templates so you won't need to do strip cutting. you will need to join the patt for the large square. Then you could use the paper patts to make some cardboard templates. I just glue the paper to some cardboard and cut out when dry. All the best with your new project, looks like it's coming along great.
    PS: The templates include a marked quarter inch seam allowance, don't forget to click print as image under advanced properties in adobe Reader so that the seam allowances will print out, also make sure scaling is set at nil
    Cheers

    I'm positive my library does prints, but I'm not sure how I could do it since its on an Adobe file...obviously I couldn't go save the file onto their computer and then print it off.

    Oh, I did say I was going to post the colorless version for those who want to steal and come up with their own color scheme. Here it is.
